TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Seminoles.com) – Florida State men’s golfer Frederik Kjettrup has earned a spot on the All-ACC Academic Golf Team, announced Thursday morning by the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Kjettrup, who is tracking as a sport management major, is a native of Aabybro, Demark. He showed plenty of promise in his freshman season with the Seminoles, finishing fourth on one of the nation’s best teams with an average score of 72.25.

The talented international golfer became a mainstay in FSU’s five-player starting lineup, playing in nine of the team’s 10 tournaments in 2021. He carded a +0.86 average score vs. par.


Kjettrup’s highlight in his freshman campaign was tying for second at the difficult Valspar Collegiate on March 16, shooting a 9-under 204 to mark his lowest score of the year. In 28 rounds played, he finished at par or less in 13 rounds and recorded six rounds in the 60s.

He also earned Top 20 finishes at the Timuquana Collegiate (T15), the Seminole Intercollegiate (T16) and the NCAA Tallahassee Regional (T17).

Kjettrup was also successful in the ACC Championship match-play portion, which included the semifinals and finals. He finished 2-0 against his opponents from North Carolina and Clemson.

Minimum academic requirements for selection to the All-ACC Academic Team are a 3.0 grade point average for the previous semester and a 3.0 cumulative average during one’s academic career for undergraduate students. Athletic achievements during the most recent season are also considered in selecting the All-ACC Academic Team.

The ACC Honor Roll, which recognizes all conference student-athletes with a grade point average of 3.0 for the current academic year, will be released in July.
